Raspberry Wine Spritzer

Cool off with a delicious Wine Spritzer made with West Virginia Fruit and Berry Wine! According to Bon Appétit, a good rule of thumb, regardless of batch size, is three parts wine to one part club soda. Just pour your favorite WV Fruit and Berry wine into a wineglass filled with ice; top off with club soda and a dash of orange or lemon bitters. Garnish with an orange or lemon twist.
